Comment on Offshore Resource Development
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is responsible for ensuring that effects on the natural and human environment are taken into consideration during the leasing and development of oil, natural gas, renewable energy and marine mineral resources on the on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).

Citizens are invited to submit their views on development in federal waters by December 30. Send comments to Dr. Ann Bull, Pacific Studies Chief, [email protected], (805) 384-6385.
